The SK-HD1300-HS is our new cost-effective High Frame Rate (HFR) capture that provides up to 180 frames per second. Designed for sports super slow-motion replay. Compatible with all popular slow-motion servers. It also operates as a multi-format normal frame-rate camera. The wideband 6Gbps SMPTE-fiber transmission system permits up to 3X high speed output from the CA-HF1300-S3 head adapter and CU-HD1300-S3 CCU. The SDI output signal is generated by our newest 2/3" 2.6 megapixel MOS imagers. The CCU outputs include: 480/60i SD-SDI, 720/60p, 720/ 120p, 720/180p 1080/60i, 1080/120i/ 1080/180i.

Features & Functions

  • High Frame Rate (HFR) slow motion captures at 180 fps with simultaneous 3X and 1X speed HD outputs.
